I adopted a friend of a friends ghekko a couple of weeks ago. I have no experience with reptiles just my 17yr old son wanted one forever. It was all quick and I was given her tank and accessories. I wasn't told she was underweight. I was told to feed her a box of locusts a week (12-14p.box) size 3 or similar.
She looked pretty skinny and felt frail to handle. I obviously did research on all aspects of caring for her. To which I saw how she should be. She seems to gaining weight and her tales plumping.
I bought 3 tubs of locusts last Saturday and fed her the box after feeding them lettuce over 2 days. The others were put in small tank. I have tomato plants near that tank on window. I that surely they can eat the leaves.I dropped a few in. Only 1 I saw eat it straight away. I quickly checked on forums where it said they are toxic to locusts. I removed it immediately.
2 locusts died within 24 hours.
The rest are still alive 7 days later.
Are they safe to feed spot.my beautiful leopard ghekko. I would guess yes but don't want to risk it unless advised. Any advice is much appreciated.
